The performance world is like a shark: The moment it stops moving, it dies. As a presenter, programmer or curator of performing arts platforms, one must constantly strive to identify the newest, most cutting-edge and highest impact representatives of the community of creators.
Such was Itzik Giuli’s challenge upon taking up the reins as artistic director of the Israel Festival.
Perhaps the most important event of its kind on the local calendar, the Israel Festival is a multidisciplinary, wide-ranging happening that allows audiences to acquaint themselves with the best and brightest in the performing art world. As always, this year’s program features locals and foreigners; however, the roster is slightly more outrageous than previous years.
